Zoneripper Max Music Server
The ZoneRipper Max music server range is our top of the range system for ripping your CDs, storing your downloaded music collection and backing up your computer.
This multi-function unit is pre-configured (plug and play) to rip your CD’s into a high quality lossless format (FLAC, or others by software configuration) using the incredibly bit-accurate dB Poweramp software. Simply load the CD into the slot and wait a few minutes until it ejects. that’s literally all there is to it. Meanwhile the ZoneRipper Max music server will rip your CD in the highest quality bit accurate format, look up 4 major databases on the internet for the Album name, track titles, artist, genre and album artwork, and add this to the file for easy navigation later. This is known as the MetaData.
As this is effectively a Network Attached Storage Drive (or NAS drive) you can also use it to store any other computer files or make backups for your PC or Mac. It can be used to store your i-tunes music and any other downloaded music files you have, including 24bit studio master quality recordings available from a number of sources (which are growing rapidly in number). Contact us for more details on playing back 24 bit studio master files, or come to one of our Linn Lounge events !
It connects to your system with a single network cable (Cat-5 or Ethernet cable) and requires a mains supply from 110 – 240V ac.
Once you’ve stored / ripped your music you can play it back using any UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) music streamer and a suitable application to select the music and play it back. Examples include The Linn or Naim Audio ranges of music streamers, Arcam surround amps, Arcam Solo music systems, Oppo Blu-Ray players (which also are music streamers), Sonos systems and many more.
